RAM, What It Is and Why It Is Important

Random access memory, or RAM as we more commonly know it, is your computer’s memory that stores user data. The amount of RAM you need really depends on your personal computer requirements. 

For instance, if you are a gamer or if you are a graphic artist who relies on your Photoshop program, you will need more RAM than someone who doesn’t use his computer for tasks that require as much memory. More RAM may even be required for those people who do a lot of multitasking – like opening and answering emails while you are creating a document in Word or working within an Excel spreadsheet. Larger programs, like Word and Excel, and browsing Internet pages with ginormous amounts of graphics also require a lot of RAM.

Having enough RAM could save you from having to invest in a new computer. The good news is that adding RAM is usually an easy upgrade for most PCs. So, if you would like to give your computer a speedy recovery, adding RAM might be just the ticket.
